- YouTube has resumed ads on controversial star Logan Paul’s videos
- YouTube had suspended ads after Paul uploaded a video of him tasering dead rats
- Paul is still on a 90-day probation period, in which his videos cannot appear among the top trending videos on the website
Logan Paul’s YouTube channels are once again serving ads, but the controversial YouTube star is still on a 90-day probation period.
YouTube resumed running ads on Paul’s channels this week; a little over two weeks after announcing that it was temporarily suspending all ads from his content because it determined that his recent behavior made his videos “not only unsuitable for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.”
In late December, Logan posted a video containing footage of a human corpse he discovered while filming in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest. After being reprimanded, he continued to post yet another controversial video last February 5 where he fired a Taser at a dead rat.
Earlier this month, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki explained why Paul hadn’t been banned from the platform entirely.
“When someone violates our policies three times, we terminate. We terminate accounts all the time,” Wojcicki said at the Recode Media conference; adding that Logan hasn’t done anything that would cause those three strikes.
